Thank you for your prayers, Natalie and Josh's wedding was just perfect

I've been wanting to sit down all week long to let you know that Natalie and Josh's wedding went perfect. They looked gorgeous and so did the rest of the family. Luke had a good day and did fine in the wedding. Thank you so much for your prayers the ceremony was amazing and the day although very busy was just wonderful!

Mr. & Mrs. Joshua Thomure

We put our last guest on the plane today. We had a very busy, but extremely fun week. Most days we had at least 3 to 18 extra people in our home at all times. I took some of Josh's family to Mt. Rainier on Thursday and it was an absolutely beautiful day to show off "Our Mountain" as we lovingly refer to it. Friday Gordy took a huge group up to Seattle to check out Pike's Place Market and to get some fresh fish for lunch that day. All in all everything went smoothly and wonderfully.

We are still adjusting to the fact that Natalie is married, I think it will take some time to really realize that she is not coming back home. She lived in this home for all her 20 years of life. I am so proud of the young lady that Natalie has turned out to be, even though some think her too young to be married, we know that she is definitely ready and mature enough for marriage. I remember asking her one day what she was looking forward to most about getting married and she replied that she looked forward to putting together and decorating her home. She is a wonderful cook, a proficient house cleaner, very talented piano player and teacher, a servant and most of all a beautiful wife that adores her husband. Gordy and I could not be more proud of her if we tried. We are also so very happy about her choice of husband, we know he adores her and will be a great and Godly husband.

To change the subject a bit I just wanted to let you know that I'm back to reality of life on Friday when I take Luke into the hospital for his Baclafen pump trial. We will need to be at the hospital at 7 a.m. and will be spending close to 8 hours there. Please be praying that I will have a peace about taking him to the hospital, I will be honest it terrifies me to think about all the germs and people we will be in contact with. Also please pray that we will have a definite answer to whether or not we should put Luke through another surgery, if it will truly help him with his extremely bad muscle tone issues it will definitely be worth it, but it is not something that I want to do as he has already had way to many surgeries for a little guy of six.

Thank you once again for your prayers,
Luke's Mommy Suzi

The pictures show a beautiful day! The dresses are lovely and the family portrait is great!
I think there's something so special in seeing your daughters as they begin their stages of womanhood! When they become wives and mothers it seems they become more and more beautiful!
I'll be praying for peace tomorrow and definitive answers!

I am so glad to hear that Natalie & Josh's wedding went so well! God certainly answered our prayers! You have raised such an amazing young woman and although I'm a couple of years older than her, I hope that I can be like her when I get married some day. :-) Praying for Luke's trial tomorrow.

THANK YOU for posting the beautiful pictures. I've been checking multiple times a day!! Will be praying hard for you and Luke tomorrow...that the trial would not be stressful for him, that you would get clear answers, and that you won't take any "yuck" home with you all as a memento.

Blessings and HOPE!!

Love you all so much!

And now another chapter of life begins.

I’m praying for Luke that his legs will start bending, by the grace of GOD, and without the aid of medicine. I know this will be a miracle but I believe in miracles. We serve a Great GOD who loves us a LOT!

Love ya, Aunt Cindy

The LORD your GOD is with you,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with his love,
He will rejoice over you with singing."
Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)

Beautiful pictures!! So happy for you!

I somewhat understand about Natalie being gone. It is strange w/ Mandi being gone! She helped so much and was such/is such a comfort to me!

Praying for Luke!

I am so glad that the wedding went so well. It looks like a beautiful ceremony. You have a beautiful family. I remember when my daughter had to move to go to college. I was very lost without her support/friendship. I was glad for her to go though so she would start living a life without the stresses our lives have. But I can not keep her away she comes home every weekend. Glad Luke stayed healthy for the ceremony hopefully he is over everything. I will continue to pray for Luke and your family's healing.

Standing in the gap with you with renewed faith and hope after our wonderful prayer meeting as we wait on our loving Father to show Himself in "signs and wonders" in Luke's life!!!
